More important is a detailed list of what I’m missing about England now that I’ve relocated to Canada. The main thing is the newspapers. Good Lord but the dailies here on the West Coast are a dull bunch of wastepaper. How I miss my "Guardian" who’s comment pages provide more worthwhile reading than a weeks worth of what we get here.

In Our Time– a weekly discussion about ideas.
The News Quiz– a comedy panel show about the week’s news.
Mark Kermode’s Film Reviews– the best movie reviewer on the planet.
Start The Week– a weekly discussion about ideas.
